One of Australia's most iconic wines and one of only 5 cabernets included in Langton's 'Exceptional' top tier. Founded in 1971 by John Middleton and located in the Yarra Valley, Mount Mary has consistently received praise. Quintet is based on the five classic Bordeaux varieties; Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot.
"Mount Mary is one of the great wineries of Australia, and has been for decades, but I’m pretty certain in the view that it is in the form of its life. The Mount Mary wines have never looked better." Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
Awarded Winery of the Year in 2018 by James Halliday at which time he noted "…its star shines brighter than that of any of the 174 wineries in the Yarra Valley."
"Stands proudly at the head of the Mount Mary portfolio. A blend of 44% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot, 16% Cabernet Franc and 5% each of Malbec and Petit Verdot, each variety handled according to its structure. Open/static fermenters, wood/stainless steel, 10-14 days on skins, 35% new oak from a range of coopers and forests, 16-20 months in barrel. Mesmerisingly silky, with a kaleidoscope of fruit and secondary flavours." 99 points, James Halliday Wine Companion.
Awarded Best Cabernet and Family 2021.
And a Special Value Award to boot.
